4 Fabulous Fashion Shots
Beauty Look Of The Week… Rodarte’s Sun Kissed Glamour
Rodarte’s Fall 2011 collection took inspiration from the American Plains of Terrence Malick’s “Days Of Heaven”. Reminiscent of glowing sunsets, the colour palette of golden wheat hues imitate amber-lit mornings and dusk, while also brightening the complexion.
To achieve the look, start with a flawless complexion and a dusting of bronzing power underneath the cheekbones for added definition. Yellow and golden eye shadow tones are then applied around the rim of the lids, brow bone and in the crease. The inner rims of the eyes are lined with fresh toned pencil, before the look is finished off with a rich copper-berry shade on the lips.
The Rodarte make-up and texturised tresses are prefect for a glowing Summer look.
The first cover of Kim Kardashian on her Wedding Day has been released. The People’s Magazine cover shows a good glimpse of one of the magnificent Vera Wang gowns she wore on her big day.
It’s been reported that just two days before the wedding Kim hadn’t decided which one of the dresses she was going to wear for her big “I do” moment. Of her chosen gown, Vera Wang said: “It was Cinderella. But Cinderella with a very sexy body. She has a very Liz Taylor or Sophia Loren kind of body and we didn’t want to lose that.” Kim later changed into her two other gowns for the festivities (see sketches below).
Lady Gaga Fashion Label
Lady Gaga and her little sister, Natali Germanotta, are believed to be creating a fashion line.
The line will reportedly be “relatively normal and wearable”, with the pair intending to remodel iconic dresses from the past but with a twist – think of Marilyn Monroe’s white dress but created rubber… interesting!
Marc Jacobs For Dior?
The rumour mill is still in overdrive with reports indicating Marc Jacobs will move to the helm of Christian Dior, while Phoebe Philo will take on his position at Louis Vuitton.
Now Marc Jacobs president, Robert Duffy, has added fuel to the fire by commenting, “[Marc] could do a couture line”. Meanwhile, no shortlist has been revealed by Dior and no date has yet been set for an announcement of who will take over as Creative Director.
Happy Thursday! xx

Make-Up Trends From The Catwalk
Forget The Lips! Autumn Has ‘Fall’en For The Eyes
While I love a statement red lip, this coming Autumn / Winter 2011 season it is all about dramatic, alluring, captivating eyes.
From girly playfulness at Donna Karan (pictured above left) to high-octane neon pinks at Thakoon (pictured right) – the Fall runways left lips nude while eyes had their moment. Powerful eye statements were also seen at: Philip Lim, Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Rodarte.
My favourite: At Donna Karan tangerine cream eye shadow was smudged across the top lid while white eyeliner discreetly traced the bottom. Lips were a delightful pastel pink matte to soften the look. Eyebrows were left untamed. Sweet, simple, playful perfection!
Meanwhile, Philip Lim saw metallic green eyes take the spotlight. At Marc Jacobs, a modern tough baby doll aesthetic took the traditional sweetness of this trend to the next level. Anna Sui created a different take on eye contouring that was both dramatic and intriguing; while Vera Wang’s grunge eyes created a dark and brooding prettiness that was just the right amount of sweet and sexy. Rodarte drew inspiration for eyes from the reds, golds and tawny browns of autumn. But the cleanest look was Proenza Schouler, where ‘minimalist’ eyes still drew the bulk of the impact in the midst of this flawless, barely-there look.

Young, Beautiful & With Impeccable Style…
Choosing from luxury labels such as Valentino, Prada and Marchesa, to name but a few; Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld have already graced numerous best dressed lists for their impeccable red carpet style.
Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld must be two of the most ‘in style’ teenagers in the world. Age appropriate and also perfectly pretty – their choices have the right amount of edge yet are always classically chic.
At just 14 years of age, Hailee Steinfeld’s red carpet style is exquisite. To the 2011 Oscars, Steinfeld wore a divine pale pink crystal embroidered tulle, tea length dress by Marchesa (pictured above).
Accessorised with Ferragamo peep-toe shoes, a silver Ferragamo clutch and a sweet pink headband; Steinfeld looked absolutely perfect. And when I discovered that she assisted in the dress design, I loved it even more! Steinfeld sketched the basis of this dress before taking it to Marchesa to create!
After the event, Steinfeld ditched her ladylike heels for a pair of Converse hi-tops. Aw, how adorable!
Elle Fanning at 13years of age has style and elegance beyond her young years. Her beauty and innocence translates perfectly to the red carpet where she favours floaty, feminine gowns by labels such as Valentino, Rodarte and Marchesa.
Of her passion for sophisticated dressing she says, “I love fashion! I love clothes! I really like vintage clothes, so in my closet there’s a lot of ’50s stuff. I go to the stores and shop around.”
